North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Communication Services.
This collection of charts is primarily a compilation of statistics collected by various private and public organizations about North Carolina schools in relation to the rest of the country. Most of the information came from "Rankings of the States, 1991" by the National Education Association. Figures used in the rankings represent the latest available statistics. Data for 1991 are presented in the following areas: (1) population; (2) enrollment and attendance; (3) faculty; (4) general financial resources; (5) governmental revenue; (6) school revenue; (7) governmental expenditures and debt; (8) school expenditures; and (9) miscellaneous. Data for each area are followed by tables of educational trends for North Carolina. It is particularly interesting to note that in 1991, 30 states had a higher average annual teacher salary than North Carolina, while 34 states had a higher per capita income. Thirty-one states had a higher expenditure (from all sources) per pupil in average daily attendance than did North Carolina. Nine tables and 14 charts (graphs) display the comparative information.
